Default Raindrops

This is as good a place as any for this, http://www.livescience.com/environment/090723-raindrop-size.html
"Experts have long thought that the size differences observed in natural raindrops was due to the same complex interactions of droplets that form raindrops in clouds. But a new study finds that the best explanation for the motley size assortment is that the raindrops released from the clouds break up into smaller drops as they fall." The video was way cool.

You should put this in the education forum. The video is very interesting.

Kind of like blowing a bubble out of itself only to pop when it has become too big.
